    Yes, his brother Able.
    Abel didn't have children.

    Cain was sent away from Eden where others lived. Adam was not the first man. There were others, which is why he was afraid of dying. He had seen someone die.

    Reread Gen 3 and 4 and then post because you are so wrong about everything in your post. Adam and Eve were removed from Eden BEFORE they had kids. Fear of dying was never attributed to Adam and he lived to be at least 932 years old. Adam saw no one die for he was not in the vicinity when Cain killed his brother....do you really think he was there and just stood there and watched??? Really? Get your facts straight before posting so that others can take you seriously.

    The man and the woman were removed from the GARDEN of Eden. Not Eden.
    Adam was told he would die if he ate of the fruit. Why did Adam not eat of the fruit? He knew what it meant to die.

    At this point and stage of humankind intermarriage wasn't a problem, because everything was new and the laws of entropy didn't have a big impact... Intermarriage, incest, is bad to day because of the laws of entropy, things are in bondage to decay, so in order to slow that down it's good to get another families set of genes to counter react some of our families defects (genes).

    IF Adam wasn't the first man then quit pretending the bible is true and that you believe it. Both Jesus and Paul referred to Adam as being the first man. If not Adam, who?? What was his name and where in God's Book do you come up with your invention?

    Just a point of clarification. I am not referring to a possible pre Adamic race . If there ever was such none would be living during Cain since that race had passed before Adam came on the scene.

    I am a conservative, evangelical pastor and you just keep "trukin" through the scriptures and your questions my brother.

    I will always be happy to answer questions of any kind or sort without criticism. As long as they are not just meant to be argumentative and whimsical.

    Keep TRUKIN for the Lord~!

    PLEASE NOTE: Adam and Eve had "other sons and daughters" the Bible says in Gen 5:4

    "After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters."

    If a daughter started having children at any age between 15-25...well...you do the math. By the time Cain and Seth were only in the middle years...lets say 300 or 400 there were plenty of women who very distant relatives.

    THAT...is the easiest answer I can give you without being complex. btw...this is the same answer I would give to argue why "...Cain went out from the Lord’s presence and lived in the land of Nod, east of Eden." Gen. 4:16. There were so many by that time.

    Think about it. If just one daughter had a child every year or even every other year for 10, 20, 30 or even 100 years (after all...at that time that would still be very young) look how many people there would be. Multiply that by each daughter that had children, every grand-daughter maybe just 15-20 years later, etc, etc..etc...there would be towns of people...cities....just like Nod, where Cain dwelt.

    Hope this helps~!
    Huh, I've never considered that, It's cool that an answer can be right there? yet, we can't see the forst for the trees.

    thank you pastrmark. i wasnt asking the question to be facetious or anything else. they say it's not important and as maggiemye puts it "if God included the names of all the wives of all the men mentioned in scripture, there would be a LOT of useless information taking up space in the book." I dont see where the very first daughter of adam and eve would be "useless information" i would think that that would be some pretty pertinent information being as she WAS the first. and im just looking at it as a stand point that i would be able to somehow explain it to an un-believer, instead of saying to "focus what IS there and what isn't there is irrelevant". a non believer is not going to want to hear that...they wanna hear the facts. i am just trying to broaden my knowledge and try to witness and pass on the word of christ to my friends and family to try to get them to be saved as this world draws closer to becoming nearer to the end. i know it says that we shall not know the time or the day but i DO believe it's getting closer than people think. it may not happen in my lifetime but i WOULD like to see as many people get to know the Truth and get to heaven.

    Here's what I found on it...

    Question: "Who was Cain's wife? Was Cain's wife his sister?"

    Answer:
    The Bible does not specifically say who Cain’s wife was. The only possible answer is that Cain's wife was his sister or niece or great-niece, etc. The Bible does not say how old Cain was when he killed Abel (Genesis 4:8). Since they were both farmers, they were likely both full-grown adults, possibly with families of their own. Adam and Eve surely had given birth to more children than just Cain and Abel at the time Abel was killed. They definitely had many more children later (Genesis 5:4). The fact that Cain was scared for his own life after he killed Abel (Genesis 4:14) indicates that there were likely many other children and perhaps even grandchildren of Adam and Eve already living at that time. Cain's wife (Genesis 4:17) was a daughter or granddaughter of Adam and Eve.

    Since Adam and Eve were the first (and only) human beings, their children would have no other choice than to intermarry. God did not forbid inter-family marriage until much later when there were enough people to make intermarriage unnecessary (Leviticus 18:6-18). The reason that incest today often results in genetic abnormalities is that when two people of similar genetics (i.e., a brother and sister) have children together, there is a high risk of their recessive characteristics becoming dominant. When people from different families have children, it is highly unlikely that both parents will carry the same recessive traits. The human genetic code has become increasingly “polluted” over the centuries as genetic defects are multiplied, amplified, and passed down from generation to generation. Adam and Eve did not have any genetic defects, and that enabled them and the first few generations of their descendants to have a far greater quality of health than we do now. Adam and Eve’s children had few, if any, genetic defects. As a result, it was safe for them to intermarry.

    Always, cite your source.

    Maggie, the reason they didn't include the female lineage was because in Jewish culture women were seen as second-class citizens. The Bible is the Word of God but it's still written according to it's particular cultures.

    This is like Apologetics 101

    It'd be beneficial to have an entire forum dedicated to answering these sorts of questions.

    Adam was the first man that God created from the dust of the Earth. When Adam sinned the "dust" he was made from was also cursed. Who is to say God didnt carry on making more people from the dust of the ground?.....just a thought.

    Gen 5:4 "The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years and he HAD OTHER SONS and DAUGHTERS." His daughters were unnamed but the Word speaks of them here. The first Sons were able to marry the first daughters because they did not have any genetic defects which is why today we cannot do this and later moses gave the law on this. This was God protecting us as the DNA code became defective and has deteriorated since then. Answers in Genesis provides many answers to these kinds of questions.

    Adam was told he would die if he ate of the fruit. Why did Adam not eat of the fruit? He knew what it meant to die.

    GENESIS 3:6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

    Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.

    God Bless,

    Verses 46-49: "However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man"

    Just another though. Paul speaks in Cor that a person had sex with his fathers wife. Maybe this was the sin that was lying at the door of his the tent of Cain .No doctrine, just another possibility, as unpalatable as it is.
